Comment : Frankly i have noticed that because of the way men in India are brought up, and, my apologies for generalising, if they know how to cook, even reasonably ok, the world around them makes them believe they are a boon to their woman. I do not think it should be a big deal if a man can cook, just like one does not make a big deal about a woman being a good cook!:)

Does enjoying the challenge of rustling up the perfect dish enable a man to perfect his relationship skills? In my opinion, it often does. What has your experience been? Do you think the better a man's cooking abilities, the better he is at appreciating his partner? Or does one have no bearing on the other?

Comment : From experiences of people around me, I have observed that if one of the partners is not serious about the relationship, in the long run, the other suffers in a live in. Despite the laws etc in place, there is a certain stigma attached with living in and a lot of people would not approach the courts if one of the partners is not committed and breaks up/wants to end the relationship without having any obligations. Practical at many fronts, it may not be as practical after all.

Inspite of all the laws that have been passed by the court, live-in is much frowned upon in India still. What is your opinion about it? Is it good/bad/ugly to live-in with your partner? And what about keeping your parents in the know?

Comment : Talk to your wife about it. Also ask yourself, what is it that makes you jealous?

There are these two men I feel jealous about, the way my wife chats with them in parties. I know nothing more will happen, it's just party fun, but still can't help watching out for where she is when they are in the same party. Help please.

Comment : If he does not have to think twice before calling you by your name, why should you hesitate?A marriage is a partnership between equals. :)

How should I address my husband after marriage? I know according to Indian customs, we are not supposed to call our husband by their names but the times are changing nowadays. Is it fine to call him by his name?
